Finally we get to see some original content from the legend that is Jerome LOL! His brand new EP, Deleted / Fool, on home label Friends of Friends sees its release next month (February 4th to be exact) but today he’s just shared the first single from the EP, featuring the beautiful vocals from Angelina Lucero. Some of you may recognize Lucero from her appearance on Jerome’s previous venture, the Changes LP from LOL Boys.
“Fool” is a developed sense of self from Jerome, an elaboration upon his signature weirdness that places him in a category of producer all his own. Although this is a sort of new sound for Jerome, it’s very much still him. With heavily laden bass drums with skittered snares and chimes rising subtly above them, the track is a heavy clanker with heavy techno leanings, until Lucero’s vocals come in, surprisingly taking things to a simultaneously warmer and haunting place. And in very true-to-form Jerome LOL fashion, he’s got a brand new website up where you can trip out for six minutes with the track. Uh, I think ‘jerry-built’ would be an applicable pun here.
Stream the new track below, and if you want to preorder the whole EP (psst… I listened to it and it’s very good) you can do so by clicking HERE.
